On Dec. 11, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will decide whether or not to approve a new city of 55,000 people in the far northwestern corner of the county. The proposed project is located on Tejon Ranch, which sits at the confluence of five eco-regions. Here, where coastal habitats meet the Mojave Desert and the Tehachapi Mountains, lies one of California’s most biodiverse landscapes. Tejon Ranch is home to 911 native plant taxa. That’s 14 percent of California’s native flora of California occurring on just 0.25 percent of the state’s acreage! •The proposed Centennial Specific Plan is sited on a hot, windy grassland prone to wildfire. CAL FIRE has designated the location a high fire hazard severity zone. •Neighborhoods would be built on top of two major fault lines, including the San Andreas. •Public transit will not accompany the project, leaving future residents with long commutes. •Experts estimate an additional 75,000 car trips per day. •Californians will have to pay a $800 million price tag to widen Hwy 138, which will be needed to accommodate traffic associated with the project. •Centennial will destroy more than 5,000 acres of high quality habitat for native grasses and wildflowers.
